Hillary's cattle futures SCANDAL!!


from Wiki...
In 1978 and 1979, lawyer and First Lady of Arkansas Hillary Rodham engaged in a series of trades of cattle futures contracts. Her initial $1,000 investment had generated nearly $100,000 when she stopped trading after ten months. In 1994, after Hillary Rodham Clinton had become First Lady of the United States, the trading became the subject of considerable controversy regarding the likelihood of such a spectacular rate of return, possible conflict of interest, and allegations of disguised bribery,[1] allegations that Clinton strongly denied. There were no official investigations of the trading and Clinton was never charged with any wrongdoing.

Cool, she got a huge return. Good advice, or hanky panky? Well, it worked well to get 99k return.

How about this though?

G W Bush got a really good tip!!

George borrowed 500,000 from a bank that he was a director to fund his investment in the Texas rangers,
Bush’s stake in the team from 1.8 to 11.8 percent, his cut from the proceeds of the sale was $14.9 million, a 25-fold return on his investment of $606,302.

and so he got 15 million from a deal where he never put his own money in the pot. And it was the taxpayers that boosted the investment, by creating a huge price for te Rangers in tax money for the stadium

But the RW has made a really big deal about the Cattle Futures:" as a proof that the Clinton's are CORRUPT, but google Bush's Rangers?
